Auberge Provençale

Looks like I'm on an 'eating out in Menton, summer holidays' sort of roll. The truth is I don't often get out in summer but since taking photographs for Menton DP and Monte Carlo DP, I've re-arranged things a little so I can get out for a few hours a little more often - leaving dogs at home to await my return.

Many locals complain about summer - they shop very early before the visitors are up - and then you don't see them again. I have to say I'm loving this - every time I go down to Menton and mill about with all the tourists, I feel as if I'm on holiday. And of course I am...

This is the Auberge Provençale - I've never eaten here but have good friends who eat here regularly and say it's very good. So that's one for the future.

See the curved archway just beyond the last umbrella on the right? Well you can see that doorway here.

    I like your photo today and your narrative is interesting to read too. I can imagine you are a budy lady.

  2. Looks like a neat place to eat and sit awhile. Love the red tablecloths.

  3. Le menu du jour looks like a great value at 14.50 euros! I wonder if it includes a glass of the house wine ;-)

    I enjoyed following the links to the closed door, then the open door. It's fun to see what's going on in the cafes and then think about what else might be happening just out of camera range.

  5. It looks like a cozy place to have lunch or dinner or just having a cup of tea or coffee. Nice shot!

  6. Having someone else prepare a meal at a lovely restaurant is my idea of a good time. This place looks like one of them!

  7. I wonder why locals always loathe tourists so much! lol! :)

    Our recent Sumfest reggae festival brought hoards of tourists to our small town and naturally we locals hated it too! :D
